mens long fringe

When it comes to hairstyle terminology for men, things get a bit tricky. We don’t usually refer to the front of a man’s hair as fringe or bangs, but the masculine looks trending now involve particular attention to the hair around the face. Whether the overall cut is tapered or loose, short or long, we’re seeing fringe that whips around the brow, ends flicked, texture thick but with a shattered edge. The front length makes for great styling versatility. Click the style notes to learn more. –– Laura Martin

dirty peach

This shade is a little fruity and a little grungy. A dishwater blonde base is accented with a dash of rose gold and a touch of soft copper. The result is a red so soft that almost anyone can wear it, and a peach so tame that even the most conservative employer won’t object. But, understated as it is, this shade still carries intensity. Get the formula and application tips in the style notes.

infinity bun

Sometimes all it takes to create something new is one small twist. In this case, you can take that literally. This cute look is created with a simple trick: two top knots with the ends wrapped around each other to create a bun that seems to loop back on itself seamlessly. It’s the breath of freshness you need to get through the heat. Click the notes for step-by-step instructions. –– Laura Martin

Miami Swim Fashion Week is always one of my favorite fashion weeks, it’s never too serious, full of bikini babes, and has amazing beauty looks. The presentations were full of textured waves which were were laid-back, super wearable, and had just a touch of glam. Feel free to ditch the sporty ponytail and opt for something a bit more chic for the rest of the summer and beyond.
